(KMOV) – An official apology was issued from the mayor of Waterloo after a police chief reportedly mistreated a resident at the police station.  

Chief James Trantham is accused of cussing out a woman in the lobby of police headquarters.

Becky Timpe went there to file a complaint for how officers treated her moments earlier.

Waterloo Mayor Tom Smith sent Timpe the letter apologizing for the chief’s behavior on behalf of the city.

Timpe said she was accused of breaking into a car when in reality she was trying to help some dogs that were trapped inside the hot car.
